Alongside a new-and-improved Ativ Book 9, Samsung has unveiled the Ativ One 7. It's the company's first all-in-one, curved-screen desktop.
The 27-inch desktop could be mistaken for something out of Samsung's monitor or TV lineups, but it's different in that it includes an Core i5-processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB 5,400RPM hard drive. The TN panel display also offers full HD resolution at 1,920x1,080.
In other words: the Ativ One 7 is pretty standard, apart from its fancy shape. It would be more remarkable if it had 4K resolution, sort of like Samsung's curved televsions, but it doesn't. There's also no SSD option available. Still, it's a good alternative for AIO lovers, and with the included HDMI input, they could even use it as a small-ish display for game consoles and set-top boxes.
The new Ativ One 7 will be available in the first quarter of 2015 for $1,299. We'll contact Samsung about pricing and availability in the UK.
